Mr. Ashwood was made for this job. My daughter loves working with each of the Ashwood family. Her self-esteem & confidence have grown to new heights.

Mike Ashwood is fantastic with the kids, creating an environment that balances hard work with fun. My daughter recently became a black belt and I am so proud of the journey she has taken and know that it was such a great journey in part because of Mr. Ashwood and the environment he creates for the kids.

This school is amazing. Mike Ashwood is phenomenal and successfully instructs all types of kids. I have personally seen him instruct children that have challenges that no one else might take on but Mike did - and they loved him! All of Mike's kids are black belts themselves and this is definitely a family business to be proud of. My son earned his black belt under his instruction and we are fans for life! The standards that this school sets are high and you would never regret attending here.

I love this place. Mr. Ashwood is a great instructor. My dad and I started going here back when I was 14 and 9 years later, I'm getting back into it (after a 5 year hiatus) to work toward my 2nd degree black belt. If you live in Forney or the surrounding areas and are looking for a good place to learn martial arts, I highly recommend International Karate and Self Defense.

Does Your Teenager Need Help Becoming Their Best Selves?

Instead of giving into the moodiness and attitude, take them to our martial arts school instead!

Teenagers are smart and capable – but they can also be their own worst enemies. Between peer pressure, their innate urge to rebel against their parents, and their surging hormones, they can be impossible to be around. But all they need is an outlet for their frustrations – and an opportunity to learn how to be their best.

Does your teen need

help in one of these areas?

They make hasty, poorly-considered decisions and need to have better judgment.

They’re being bullied at school – or they’re the one doing the bullying. They don’t get enough exercise or need to lose weight.

They have low self-esteem and seem to be down all the time. They give up when things get difficult and fail to meet their goals.

Raising a teenager requires persistence & patience

Luckily there is a comprehensive solution…

It can test your sanity even at the best of times. Yet, you want the best for your teenager. You want them to have the tools they need to succeed now and later in life – and you’d like that to happen without having to pull out all your hair in the process. Getting them to do anything you want them to do can feel utterly impossible, and you’re not sure where to start.

Studying martial arts helps kids learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.

your teen will grow with every class!

Teenagers who study martial arts learn the benefits of self-control and discipline with every lesson. Our classes emphasize core values like discipline, respect, and persistence. Students learn that the way they treat others – in and out of the dojo – reflects on them as people and affects their ability to achieve their goals.

This is an exceptional place. Especially for my 5 year old son. Mike is amazing with the kids, he has a special gift, in working with children & he's funny too!
We also had my son's birthday here, and it was super easy and fun!!
